How does one go about selfdisqualifying?

I just took that curse and burnt it, it's gone forever!

You can do that?! Whoa!! Thank you! You must be all powerful!

Just ran across this real life where's Waldo story. Seems a marine laboratory has lost an underwater robot named Waldo.

Aha! I just got a 1 vote, but alas no comment with it. So I am under 4. Anyone want to contend me for the brown?

Once again, I prove that if I show it to my wife, and she likes it, that is the kiss of mediocrity. The early high votes should have clued me in that it would drop big time.

I'm at 3.55. I want to self-DQ but I don't know how.

In order to self-DQ, you have to write to SC to ask for them to remove the photo from the challenge. You can't do this on your own.

SC will send you a pm or email, asking you to consider the consequences of a self-DQ because it's considered one of your DQ alottments without penalty. I believe that you're allowed 2 without any penalty UNLESS they've changed that rule now??? So, if you accidently do something wrong and get DQ'd another time beyond that, you're at your limit. The next DQ and you've got a penalty for it.

It's best to really consider what you're thinking of doing because it may not be worth it for you. I know that you're upset at your score and likely don't want it hanging in there to watch it be masacred score wise LOL...BUT....think about what it will do by taking it out vs letting it ride and just chalking it up to a not so great score and move onto the next challenge or side challenge. It really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, does it? We all have our photos that bomb and we all react to it by wanting to pull it but, it may not be worth it. Just think about it and if you decide you want it DQ'd after that....write to SC and ask how that is done. They will answer. :)

Best wishes and chin up! :) You've just joined most of us who have had our "lousy scores" :)

Seems like people are liking my photo less and less as the week wears on. But I have to admit -- mine could have been edited better. I got a little inhibited about really glamming it up -- but now I wish I would have. It's prob'ly pretty boring, so I guess I'm glad for a decent score.

yup, mine's dropping too. It's a very lovely score, and I very happy with it--but there are so many excellent photos in here. I expect to see some 7s. I think they're just being shy...

Enjoying the scenery as I drop towards a 5. Early votes had me thinking it was pretty good.

This is so strange--this photo is completely tracking my veggie track. So that means it should ultimately end up at 6.14

Still under 4. Yes, Waldo is in evidence - this is by no means an inaccessible entry.

Been dropping slowly into the 5.teens, but seems to be going up again. Would like to just make my average with this one.

There is a huge discrepancy in voting vs viewing. But remember this is a member challenge, so there are probably still many registered users that are still interested in looking.

However, there's no excuse for difference in open challenges :D

Go Wendy, Go! Looks like you're the top scorer -- at least on us who are 'fessing up!

Mine's holding steady in middle-of-the-pack syndrome:
